AIX Shell Programming Course Overview

AIX Shell Programming Course Overview

The AIX Shell Programming course is a comprehensive training program designed to equip learners with essential skills for scripting on AIX systems. This course covers a wide array of topics, from basic Unix commands to complex scripting techniques using Korn, Bash, and POSIX shells.

Starting with a command review, learners will get familiar with the foundation of Unix-like systems, including file handling and regular expressions. As they progress, they'll dive into shell scripting basics, understanding how to create, name, edit, store, and execute scripts effectively. The use of variables and integer arithmetic within scripts is thoroughly explained to allow for dynamic script creation.

Learners will also handle runtime data, implement conditional execution for decision-making, and utilize loop constructs for repetitive tasks. Advanced modules will introduce multi-branch decisions using case statements and the creation of functions for modular scripting.

By the end of the course, participants will be adept at writing efficient and robust shell scripts, enhancing their capability to automate tasks and manage AIX systems effectively. This course will be invaluable for system administrators and developers looking to harness the power of shell scripting to streamline their workflow.

This is a Rare Course and it can be take up to 3 weeks to arrange the training.
